One of William Faulkner's finest novels, As I Lay Dying was originally published in 1930, and remains a captivating and stylistically innovative work. The story revolves around a grim yet darkly humorous pilgrimage, as Addie Bundren's family sets out to fulfill her last wish: to be buried in her native Jefferson, Mississippi, far from the miserable backwater surroundings of her married life. Told through multiple voices, it vividly brings to life Faulkner's imaginary South, one of the great invented landscapes in all of literature, and is replete with the poignant, impoverished, violent, and hypnotically fascinating characters that were his trademark.

    " This book is so true in such a crazy way. "

    " Great story about a family traipsing around the countryside with their dead mother in a pine box. Anse, the husband of Addie, was determined to bury her as he promised in Jefferson County. The story goes in unexpected directions as they encounter different adventures. I liked the author's style of telling the story through the various characters. I loved this book once I figured out who was who in the story. "

    " I just had to read a classic; full of dialogue which is useful to understanding the culture of the South. Probably will not be looking for another one of Faulkner's books. "
